Building a better Life in the Law conference, 28th September

Our 25th anniversary conference

LawCare’s inaugural conference Building a Better Life in the Law took place on 28th September and was an inspiring day focusing on culture change in the law. Speakers and panellists from across the profession gave their thoughts on how we can all make the law a happier place to work and urged us all to remember the special place lawyers hold in society.

Key takeaways were the need for more training in human skills to deal with bad behaviour from others in the law and clients, the importance of boundary setting, the relationship between wellbeing and regulatory risk and the need for investing and nurturing juniors for the future sustainability of the profession. Delegates also attended a workshop on LawCare’s free online learning Fit for Law module Working with Others which launches in January.

Law Society President I.Stephanie Boyce also gave a special interview urging leaders in the law to ‘lift as they climb’.

    How I coped with alcohol dependence
